Warm compresses: A large painful nodular acne lesion should not be squeezed/popped. It is already ruptured under the surface of your skin. You have an infection setting in and you need to let your body deal with it. Squeezing it might spread the infection or make it worse. You can try to apply warm wet compresses (30min at a time) to the site and see if this drains it. See a doc if not resolving in 7 days. ...Read more

There: There is a possibility that she could have molluscum contagiousum which is caused by a wart like virus. They look like little red or flesh colored bumps with a small hole in the middle that occasionally has a white, thick discharge. It commonly affects children and usually goes away within a year without treatment. Picking or squeezing them can cause spreading and/or an infection, so it is not advised. Below I've attached a website with more information about them.

If the spots start to develop on her face, appear to be infected, seem to be worsening, or if you think they are not molluscum, then give her doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more
